Spectrum of Responsibility – An Ethics Workshop for Educators

February 21, 2023
4:30-7:30 PM
Board Room – Jewish Community Campus
Zoom participation available upon request

The number of perpetrators in the Holocaust was relatively small compared to the millions of civilians living in occupied Europe during the Second World War. What about these millions of others? Where do they fall on the spectrum of responsibility that ranges from perpetrator, to collaborator, to bystander, to rescuer? This workshop, taught by MCHE’s historian Dr. Shelly Cline, explores these issues and helps educators draw relevant connections for their students to the world today.

A registration fee of $15 includes all class materials and light dinner for those attending in person.
